Grove Police Officers made several arrests in town this past weekend, mostly due to outstanding warrants.
One arrest happened after Offi cer Scott Graham noticed a man asleep on a picnic table in Grove Springs Park at 11:23 p.m. Saturday evening. The man said he was just resting.
When Officer Graham called dispatch to check his identification, they advised him that the man, Kenneth A. Wogoman had an outstanding warrant for his arrest out of Caddo County for failure to pay fines and costs. Caddo County requested Wogoman be held.
Graham arrested him and transported him to the Delaware County Jail. Later that evening, Offi cer David Sergeant was walking through On-Cue when he came in contact with a man he had previous contact with. After checking his identification with dispatch, Sergeant was informed that the man, Brandon Lee Bartley, had fi ve local warrants out of the City of Grove. He was placed under arrest.
Bartley’s warrants were for failure to comply with insurance requirements, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, no valid driver’s license and minor in possession of alcohol.
On Friday night three people were arrested in Grove. At approximately 10 p.m. Officer David Sergeant and other Grove officers were dispatched to be on the lookout for a light bluecar with three black suspects that drove off from a gas station in Jay. Before
Sergeant even had a chance to set up at Honey Creek, he noticed a vehicle that met the description and began to follow the car at State Park Road. The car failed to use its left turn signal.
Sergeant followed the car, which stopped at Grand Pointe Convenience Store. Sergeant made contact with the driver and advised him the reason for the
stop. Sgt. O’Herin and Officer Gayle Wells arrived to assist. Sergeant asked the driver for his license, which he stated was at home. He was identified as Charles Monroe Oliver of Tulsa. Although the driver denied that he had driven off from a gas station without paying in Jay, he did admit that they had just been there. Dispatch discovered a warrant out of Wagoner County for Oliver for robbery with a firearm. He was then placed under arrest and given to awaiting Jay Police offi cers for transport to Delaware County Jail.
